's most likely going to weaken. but that has no bearing on what it's going to do for us. i do not expect it to be a hurricane when it gets towards our region. what i do expect it to be, however, is a very large and a very massive storm that is going to be affecting us for days. here it is with winds of 75 miles an hour, moving to the north about 7 miles an hour. the latest track has made a little bit of a shift to the north of our region. you might think, hey, that's good news, right? it's good news for one reason, rainfall. i think less rain now, i'm no longer worried about river flooding in our area, at least major river flooding. however, in this track, the winds would still be as trong, or even stronger. so we're going to be watching this one very, very closely. as a matter of fact, let's take a look at some of the winds. this is on sunday morning around 8:00. ten miles an hour, going up to 60 miles an hour. what about 10:15 sunday morning, 60-mile-an-hour gusts still on the shore. watch on the day on monday as they move across our region. and then on tuesday, 60-mile-an-hour gusts,
